The Jacobson Flare regrets: Android apps revoked from Google Play

There is no easy way to say this

Regretfully, the Android editions of the Jacobson Flare App and Jacobson Flare NEWS App have been revoked and decommissioned. Henceforth, they are no longer be available for new purchases from Google Play.

In the beginning

In the first place, when the Jacobson Flare for iOS was launched in June 2014, an Android edition was simply not an option for us. The iPad was already leading the field in  aviation applications.

From a range of class-leading apps like the Jacobson Flare, the iPad evolved to become integrated, universally, on flight decks. Electronic flight bags (EFBs) and flight deck libraries are now standard.

Over the years we had a modest number of requests for an Android edition and this became possible around 2020-21. The Jacobson Flare came to rely on the integrity and flexibility of the PressPad Magz and News platforms. Their professionalism and pro-active communication skills have been a joy to behold and the results speak for themselves.

Consequently, we produced and shall continue to produce the Jacobson Flare App V2.0 for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, on Apple iOS and later OS devices.

We launched the Jacobson Flare App for Android V1.0 in 2020. However, this edition has not met its promised expectations. Ultimately, it is no longer self-sustaining or viable and, reluctantly, has been revoked. There was no alternative.

For Existing Android Subscribers

As was previously stated, the iOS editions will, of course, remain available.

However, existing Android subscribers of the complete Jacobson Flare App should still be able to access their downloaded content. Remember, though, you need the internet to access the 6 JF videos and the 5 JF calculators.

Furthermore, the Jacobson News App articles may always be viewed at . (That’s where they were sourced.)
